Update time as usual, bit of a late one and a large one as i never had chance to do it over the weekend like a normally do anyways on to the pictures like normal
Earlier in the thread i tried the malt vinegar trick, which worked a treat on parts that weren't painted here the bits i did fresh out the vinegar after one night
Then i took the core plugs out of the block
Then i cracked on building the head up as its sat on the kitchen side
Fitted new steam seals, valves already been lapped in fitted valves and hva's
Then i "bagged" the front end ready for the work to begin underneath
Then my new -31 actuator came in the week from "Scooby"
Then i did more bits with the spray gun and picked a few bits up from vaux
Then I removed fuel tank and rear beam
I have taken the carbon canister off, so i no longer need the breather that goes back past the fuel tank and up to the filler neck, what have people done here? just block the connection on the filler neck or leave it venting to atmosphere?
Connection on filler neck, what have people done then?
Then i focused on underneath
First to degrease and remove all dirt and get rid of any rust
Then i removed all the rust and then etched, seam sealed, primed and stone chipped
left that to dry! So i cracked on with the engine
I already cleaned the block earlier in the week and painted it
Fitted new core plugs
Then i fitted the crank with new glyco bearings
Then I connected the conrods and pistons
Thats all for now
